It was an amazing day, the guides were wonderful and their choice of other expedition was well conceived as neither the mountain nor the museum were open. Well worth the cost and the guides went further than expected.
Anna and Melanie were fantastic! They thought very quickly on their feet when both the museum and Mount Vesuvius were closed they brought us to Solfatera which was very interesting. thanks, ladies!
Our tour guides, Anna and Roberto, were exceptionally knowledgable, personable, and helpful. We loved this all day tour!
I truly enjoyed this day trip to Pompei. Both Anna and Roberts were knowledgeable, charming, helpful, and entertaining guides in this tour. The 3 hours drive to Napoli and the Vesuvio seemed even shorter thanks to both Anna and Roberts. They explained in depth the history, geography and even the geology grazie Roberts of the Vesuvio, Napoli and its surrounding areas. The stop at the restaurant was fun with choices of different pizzas and drinks. Pompei tour was fascinating and informative. We stop also for a sampling of Limoncello. Coming back home in the evenings Roberts entertained us with a couple of legends of the Lacrima Christi del Vesuvio. I really loved this trip.
We booked this tour a day before and we were very impressed by the experience.
Our tour leader Ana was amazing ! Knowledgeable, professional and informative.
Lunch was great in a nice restaurant.
Tour at Pompei with Enrico was amazing !
Mario, bus driver was great !

Well organised and a special day. It rained heavy during our visit but our guides couldn't have been more helpful, getting everyone rain ponchos. Such an amazing place well worth the trip.
We were on a 3 day trip to Rome and decided to take a day trip to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. The early morning start was worth it as we experienced the right amount of time in both places. Our tour guide was both information and very funny and also very helpful.
We did this tour on August 28th and just wow - there are no words to say just how freakin incredible it was! Firstly I have to mention our tour guide, Mike. I'm really not exaggerating when I say that he is the best in town, or in the world! An American living in Rome, he was very laidback with some hilarious crude jokes and taught us about Roman/Pompeii history in such a way that we were hanging on every word! It was a long day from 0715 to 2000 but having Mike as our guide it didn't drag at all!
Ok so regarding the day, climbing baby Vesuvius was exhilarating. Exhausting yes but more so exhilarating when you finally reach the top, I personally felt like a superhero when I did. Don't forget to buy a postcard for a few Euros and get it stamped to say you climbed Vesuvius. Then had a pizza lunch in Naples which was quite nice, followed by a short bus ride to Pompeii. Walking around the ruins of Pompeii was indescribable, knowing what happened to the once-thriving city! An experience not to be missed! In conclusion to say this tour was amazing would be a major understatement, wish I could rate it 6 stars :-
Had a great time, we were lucky as the weather was great and it wasn't too crowded. Andrew was an amazing guide, really attentive and always making sure everyone was okay, while giving us tips on history, how to avoid tourist traps and also making us laugh. A really enjoyable trip, would definitely recommend.
The tour guides did a fantasics job on this tour, we learnt so much about Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. Also on this tour we had nice lunch in Naples, although it was a long day it was great day.
Excellent tour and excellent tour guides who gave out plenty of information about all aspects of the sights and the area,
Wow, the opportunity to climb Mt Vesuvius and look into the crater was not to be missed, although quite a long trip from Rome. Pompeii was just as I expected, only bigger, much bigger. Could have done a whole day at Pompeii easily as there is so much to see. The guide was first class and very helpful.
Everything was very well organised, we loved every single minute!!
We loved everything about this tour and highly recommend it. From start to finish we were so pleased that we decided to book this tour. Our guide was informative and approachable. We were combined with another group and we enjoyed listening to the other guide as well. We learned a great deal that day!

Hiking up Mt. Vesuvius is one of the coolest things we did on our honeymoon. Definitely a one of a kind experience. Pompeii was really interesting, but also a bit morbid, as you might expect considering the circumstances. Long bus ride both ways, so if you can do this from Naples instead of Rome that's probably better. But still an amazing trip.
This was extremely well done, and the service was beyond expectation when rain gear appeared in the sudden downpour. The guides were extremely effective and gave us a great background into the life of people in Pompei. The rating of the climb on Vesuvius might need to be adjusted - it was more difficult than we anticipated from the description - the loose rock and gravel, in particular, but also the uphill climb itself. All in all, though, it was a fabulous experience and the guides were terrific.
This was an amazing tour. Our guide Andrew not only had great historical knowledge, but was personable and recommended great restaurants. At Pompeii, Ciara seemed like an archaeology professor. She was incredible and had a great personality. Bring a water bottle, the water at Pompeii is the freshest water we have ever tasted. Plan on hiking up Mt. Vesuvius, it is so worth it.
This was a fantastic day! Had the best guide in the world -- Massimo ruined our tours for the rest of our two week trip!!!! No one could compare to him!!!!!! He was full of all kinds of interesting information about Rome. He was funny and engaging!! That is one wonderful tour guide that you have there. We enjoyed the climb up Mt. Vesuvius and of course the trip to Pompeii. Our guide Alexandra was also very good.
Im the type of person who is least likely to enjoy a day tour but it was FANTASTIC! Andy and then Barbara in the ruins were both fantastic! Food was average but we were so hungry it didnt matter too much after our hike up the volcano. Worth every penny!
Excellent trip with Robert a very informative guide. Would definetly recommend this day trip.
This was an excellent and memorable tour and I recommend it highly to anyone who has an interest in Pompeii. My only complaint is that it was too short and I would like to spend more time in Pompeii so I hope the tour operators consider a two-day tour at some point. We love our tour guides, Dmitri and Andrea!
